CALL FOR INTEREST -- FORTH ANNUAL RADIANCE WORKSHOP

What: The use of RADIANCE in Design Practice, Research, and Education

Where: McGill University, School of Architecture, Montreal, Canada

When: August 11th & 12th (Thursday & Friday) 2005

The workshop will be hosted by the National Research Council Canada (NRC)
and McGill University, School of Architecture. Workshop organizers are
Christoph Reinhart (NRC) and Greg Ward (Anyhere Software).

Estimated Cost: previous workshop registration fees were about 200-300
Canadian Dollar (~0.82 $US) and we will aim for a comparable figure.

Purpose: To provide design practitioners, researchers, and educators with an
opportunity to present their work with the Radiance lighting simulation
software, and to share ideas and solutions with other attendees.
Participants are invited to give a talk, which will be limited to 30 minutes
(~20 minute for the talk followed by ~10 minutes of open discussion). Please
note that a presentation at the workshop does not count as an official
publication, so it can be submitted in parallel to other venues without
conflict, and likewise may be work that has been published elsewhere. We
also plan to organize a software demo session during which developers can
present their working software. It is yet to be determined whether this
workshop will also include a tutorial component.

Radiance users of all levels are welcome.

This is a preliminary call to gauge the level of interest and determine if
we will be able to hold this workshop or not. So, if you are interested,
PLEASE RESPOND NO LATER THAN FRIDAY JANUARY 7 2005 to Greg
([email protected] <mailto:[email protected]> ) and Christoph
([email protected] <mailto:[email protected]> ).

Please note, that this workshop has been scheduled in the week preceding the
9th International Building Performance Simulation Association Conference
which will also be held in Montreal ( <http://www.ibpsa.ca/bs2005/>
http://www.ibpsa.ca/bs2005/). We hope that some of you will be able to
combine the conference with the Radiance workshop. A final announcement with
the agenda, workshop dates and registration fees will be sent out in late
Winter 2005. Please complete the form below if you would like to attend.
